Maria Menounos Still Plans to Work WrestleMania XXVIII Despite Broken Ribs


There’s giving your best effort, and then there’s dedication. Maria Menounos has the latter.

In rehearsals for Dancing With The Stars, Menounos fell on her partner’s knee, breaking two ribs in the process. Her partner, Derek Hough, was pretty concerned, but Menounos insisted that they continue, and the duo went on to tie for second place.

But Menounos’ dedication is not restricted to dancing. There is no longer any concern over whether she’ll be able to make her scheduled appearance at Wrestlemania XXVIII on Sunday. The host of Extra confirmed via Twitter that she will be there with teammate Kelly Kelly as they face off against Beth Phoenix and Eve.


Menounos’ injury could take months to heal, but doctors are already seeing progress, according to an article in US Weekly. It likely won’t be much better for her appearance, but a couple broken bones clearly won’t stand between her and her work.

Now that’s taking dedication to a new level.
